Announcing its 2021 summer and winter recovery schedule on Wednesday, the Irish carrier said new destinations will include Rome, Milan, Kos and Stockholm.

“English families/visitors can now book a well-earned summer getaway safe in the knowledge that if their plans change, they can move their travel dates with a zero-change fee up until the end of December 2021.”
For Liverpool, the new summer schedule will see four weekly flights to Rome; plus two to Košice in Slovakia, Kaunas in Lithuania, and Zadar in Croatia. There will also be a new weekly flight to Greek island Kos.
The new winter routes for JLA will see twice weekly flights to Stockholm Arlanda in Sweden, Milan Bergamo in Italy, Paris Beauvais, Sibiu in Romania, and Tallin in Estonia.
